Bargain Hunting!

Last weekend I went to the Goodwill and found several things that I couldn't resist. I love seeing UGLY things transform into something lovely. Of course my husband still thinks I'm crazy, but he's coming around. He's actually finding things that he wants me to paint. Go figure!

$2 for this (what would you call this?) I don't know where I'm going to use it, but I thought it would look nice with some greenery in it.

$.69, bought it for mom, I'm not done with it yet...
I haven't taken a pic of the finished product, but this is how it looked when I bought it. I am open to suggestions as to what I can fill it with. I was thinking about buying some orbs, but I'm sure that someone out there has a better imagination than me!


  1. Hi Amy,
    ~Beautiful finds. I do love the candlesticks.

    I came back to tell you that my sister lives in B'mingham and is a teacher as well. Then I saw that you were following my profile page.
    I'm not sure if you meant to click that or the followers option that is on my main blog page. If that's what you meant to do ignore me. LOL!

    Have a wonderful evening.
    ~Melissa :)

  2. The candlesticks are my favorite. You really found some great bargains!
    Love, Mom

  3. I need to go to Goodwill with YOU! Great stuff - you must have a really good eye!

  4. Those names don't sound familiar but it's such a small world...I probably pass her everyday at preschool or something and don't even know it! I'm actually from Alabama and my family all still lives in Fairhope. We'll be venturing up that way for Mardi Gras in a few weeks and we can't wait! I'll look forward to more craty posts! I love to be inspired!
